Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction at Burnley FC


As Liverpool FC are currently topping the Premier League table, we’ve also seen the Reds, deservedly so, in the penthouse spot on many a media outlet’s global power rankings. A significant reason for this is back-up goalkeeper Adrian.

Just as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will tell you, the summer transfer window acquisition has filled in nicely for the injured Alisson this season thus far.

“Thank God — and hopefully it stays like this — we have a fit Adrian in the back and now in charge, which is good,” Klopp said. “So far, I am really happy with everything I saw.

“He is a good guy, which is important as well, but most importantly of course he can catch balls and that’s good as well.

“The solution we found for it is really good, but of course it would be better if Ali was around but that will take still some time.”

That said, let’s take a look at who Klopp might select for his first team on Sunday, the final match before the first international break, and perhaps the final match in which he will need to start Adrian in between the sticks this year.
